Bollywood's best kissers
The Hindi film industry doesn't just dare to bare, it now kisses at pretty much every opportunity, script demanding it or not. Akshay Kumar did quite a bit of it in Kambakkht Ishq, and so we decided to look at the 10 best kissers in the industry. Take a look:
He wore a serial kisser t-shirt, and is the undisputed liplock champion of the industry -- films where he doesn't kiss don't even do well, so much does his audience expect a kiss.

Her claim to fame starting out was the number of kisses in Khwahish, after which Mallika has locked lips with extreme abandon in most of her movies, from Murder to Pyaar Ke Side Effects.

He's one of the industry's most wanted leading men, and after kissing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Dhoom 2 he's apparently locked lips with Barbara Mori in his upcoming film, Kites.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
She once famously refused to kiss Chandrachur Singh in Josh, but since then she's had Shabd, Dhoom 2, Mistress Of Spices and the like, showing that those lovely lips aren't shy.

Khan started the big smooch tradition in modern Bollywood as he smacked a rain-drenched Karisma Kapoor in Raja Hindustani. Since then, the star hasn't been too wary of kisses.

Kumar was last seen locking lips with Kareena in Kambakkht Ishq, but the actor has had quite his share of seductive scenes with actresses ranging from Pooja Batra to Kajol to Sonali Bendre to Priyanka Chopra to, of course, Kareena again in Tashan.

The two kisses with Akshay Kumar pale in comparison to Bebo's steamy kiss with Fardeen Khan in Dev. The actress has also had her moments with then-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor in Jab We Met.

The Dev kiss might have been Kareena's hottest, but Fardeen saved his steamiest for Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena, where he must have chapped Koena Mitra's lips as he attacked that mouth.

She's only a few films old, but Deepika's already kissed real-life boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor in Bachna Ae Haseeno and apparently has another liplock lined up with Saif Ali Khan in Love Aaj Kal. No wasting time here.
